If embedian is done in a clean way, I don't believe anybody
at Debian will be annoyed, but pleased. A debian/emrules
and debian/emcontrol would be sufficient to not disturb
anyone. Even better would be way to express everything in
the original debian/rules and debian/control. For the
debian/rules file maybe be using an "emdebian-enhanced"
CDBS. For debian/control maybe by inventing a EmPackage
keyword instead of Package. I have not tried how this
might confuse the existing dpkg tools.
